BugLink: https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1860724

SRU Justification:


* On Ubuntu 20.04, NVMe Target will not get discovered in N2N
* configuration. The discovery was failing because Initiator was
* trying FC PRLI instead of NVMe PRLI.


* The driver code changes to handle NVMe N2N configuration and send PRLI
* based on the target.

[Test Plan]

* Load driver in NVMe N2N configuration and NVMe devices should be
* discovered by an Initiator.

[Where problems could occur]

* NVMe N2N configuration.

[Other Info]

* The bug is with inbox qla2xxx driver and needs update.
* All the qla2xxx driver bug fixes are part of upstream kernel.
* The repo used is,
* https://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux/+git/focal
* The base-commit used to apply these bug fixes is at the bottom.
